Today is an exciting day. Kim a former shipmate of mine on the USS Guadalcanal LPH-7 is coming to visit with his dog Raven. They arrived in the area sometime yesterday and will be over to the house today. Kim came aboard way back in the 70's to run communications tests using satellites which were brand new at the time. After the testing he was able to stay onboard and we became good friends. Kim was also in our wedding when Bonnie and I got married so this is his second visit to the area.
I woke up to another beautiful day today, had my breakfast and finally got the checkbook to balance. I gave up at midnight last night. I ended up finding 2 double entries, I'm still learning iBank. Bonnie got up and had her breakfast, she was looking forward to seeing Raven again. Soon Kim and Raven came and Raven seemed very happy to come back and see us. Kim and I took off to run a few errands and visit some of the area. Bonnie was more than happy to have Raven stay with her.

Raven was happy to see us and after saying our good-bys they headed out for Columbus. We had a really good visit, Kim and I worked well together in the Navy and it was great to see him after all theses years. I had a few calls to make and was able to get that done and then I caught up on some rest and TV. Tomorrow is trash day and so I took that out. Bonnie spent several hours looking for black berries and came back with about 3 cups.
We were up this morning and after breakfast we both headed out. Bonnie had a Dr appointment, drop off movies for Elizabeth, and deposit a check. I had work to do at court so I headed up there. We both ended up getting home almost at the same time. I had what I thought was a ham sandwich but it was canadian bacon, it was good never the less. I dozed a little and then headed outside. I needed to clean out the basement bays on the Coach and vacuum them to clean up the mouse droppings that we found along with a dead mouse over the weekend. The Decon did its job. I also wanted to find some roof deflappers for a camping buddy.
|Found the deflappers to hold his awning tight.|
I finished the clean up and ordered an electronic pest repeller so will give that a try in the bays, we have one up in the coach. I repacked the bays. The CR-V really needed washed, but it was hot and humid. But got the hose out and washed the outside.
|It looks so nice now|
|Hard to see dead bees|
|The Pork Steaks were good|
|Ribs waiting their turn|
|More ribs for the grill|
|15.2 out of 16oz pretty good|
